By Prem Prethaban
Prem is every thing he wants to be when he wishes to be and BELIEVES it is best to be – an actor, an engineer, a director,a teacher, a singer , a poet and many yet to see..
Simply called a family,
Dozens of differences,
From tones to thoughts.
Diversity never too deep,
With tolerance we dive and meet,
While respecting what is beneath,
The need of our country is kept above it.
As farmers unity is our seed,
As soldiers Jalur Gemilang takes our lead,
As musicians peace is our treat,
As teachers Rukun Negara is our first lesson indeed,
We are children of a proud mother,
Who were honoured to name her,
55 years of celebrating 31st August,
Will tell you how much we love her.
Not just the rain forest filled land,
Nor the greeneries feeding blue sky ,
Even the air from our chain of mountains,
Is about freedom in the Malaysians’ eyes.
Malaysia, Malaysia, Malaysia!
The most beautiful word in any song,
Malaysians, Malaysians, Malaysians!
Mother, we are happy to be where we belong.
